20MPH pilot scheme proposed for Maybole

An information and consultation session is to be held in Maybole over a proposed 20mph speed limit trial in the town.

The information and consultation drop in session is being held at The Carrick Centre in the town on bank holiday Monday May 26th from 1pm until 8pm.

Scotland Tran Serv are proposing the speed limit on the A77 through the town and this information and drop in session will give residents and businesses the opportunity to find out more about the plans and to provide input into a public consultation on the matter.

Representatives from trunk road operator Scotland TranServ and Transport Scotland will be in attendance at the Carrick Centre in order to answer any questions from residents and businesses on the plans.

This consultation follows a recent review by Transport Scotland into road safety and speed limits across Scotland’s main trunk roads and the plans are part of a wider programme to promote the safe and efficient use of Scotland’s roads.

Vincent Tait, Scotland TranServ’s Road Safety Manager said: “The safety of our employees, of the motoring public and of pedestrians is of utmost importance to Scotland TranServ.

“That is why we are happy to support our client, Transport Scotland in making our roads safer.

“It is important that people in Maybole are able to provide input into this trial scheme, and that they can play their part in making this important trunk road running through the middle of their town safer, while considering the wider needs of local business and the community.”
